Wow, what a fun and amazing time it has been in Rocky Point over this past month. The weather has been fabulous, the restaurants and cantinas are full and the buzz all around town is how quickly the real estate is being gobbled up in anticipation of the cruise ships arriving in Rocky Point!
And speaking of the buzz going around Rocky Point, the famous Rocky Point Times Photo Contest took place this past month. Readers were asked to send in their favorite Happy Hour Photos from Rocky Point. A special thank you goes out to all of the entries and submissions to the contest. My stellar cast of judges (…ok it was me and my dog Lucky) browsed through scores of photos to come up with this year’s winners. As they say in Vegas….or is it Chebellas?…You gotta be in it to win it! So, if you did not get your photos in this year, be sure to jump on the contest next year to be one of the 4 lucky winners to claim your prize! Before we announce and congratulate our awesome winners, a special plug goes out to our sponsors of the FOUR grand prizes. A sincere YOU ROCK goes out to…

So, the headline to this month’s article in Marco Y Amigos is stating that YOU are the winner of the Rocky Point Times Photo Contest. How can this be? Well, it is rather simple…Look through your closets, garages, homes, cars, under your neighbor’s bed (just joshin’) and freshen up your home by bagging up the items you no longer need or want. Clothing, bedding, blankets and shoes (new and old) are all needed as well as food staples for the Personas Para Puerto Peñasco foundation to help the needy in Rocky Point. Our foundation gathers up these items and goes directly door to door to the homes and neighborhoods in Rocky Point and delivers the donations to those in need. YOU WIN by paying your items forward and freeing yourself of clutter and allowing more goodness to flow into your lives. On top of this, please know that the JOY you bring to each of these children and families is just remarkable.
I am a firm believer that what your heart gives out, God repays you ten times over! So, grab a bag and a box and get to cleaning. WE ALL can make a difference TOGETHER and the difference starts with YOU! To donate and arrange for pickup of your items, simply email me at Personas Para Puerto Peñasco and all of the people receiving your gifts will be forever grateful!
Best wishes to all of our Rocky Point Times readers for a blessed holiday season and safe and happy 2016. May 2016 bring your health, happiness and of course many special surprises here in Rocky Point!
